Do you still remember the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1? Yes, we are talking about the same Android powered tablet, which was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 in Barcelona. This tablet was not released in any of the markets, since the manufacturer wanted to make some changes before launching it globally. Earlier this month, Samsung re-announced the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with updated features and specs.
This tablet is already available for purchase in the US. Samsung recently went ahead and launched this device as the Galaxy Tab 800 in India. The company is already known for changing the name of its tablets before selling it in India. Previously, Samsung released the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 in India as the Galaxy Tab 730 and 750 respectively.
Mr. Ranjit Yadav, Country Head, Samsung Mobile and IT, said:
“India is one of the first 10 markets in the world where the Galaxy Note 800 is being launched. With the Samsung Galaxy Note 800, Samsung provides a unique user experience that goes beyond passive content consumption to a new world of productivity, active creation and personalized communications. While the S pen offers both active content creation and passive content creation, the Multi screen capability finally enables true multitasking. I expect this device to in many ways to fuel the growth of the tablet market in India and help us further strengthen our market leadership in the tablet market here in India.”
